    I have a love/hate with them.
    The rifles perform admirably, but the manufacture quality is ass.
    Theres lots of leftover burrs, mold flashing lines on the receiver shells, the 8-ball bolt handle is the cheapest shit acrylic you can find (like novelty autozone manual transmission shifter cap plastic)
    They try to fit universality into their product, but then fuck up open source accessory mounts into proprietary shit. Like no gay, I’m not hunting for a different mlok whatever the fuck accessory and futzing with the backside tabs to make sure it fits perfect because the fucking pajeet-brits are incapable of holding anything to a standardized spec.
    The arca swiss rail is also dovetailed every so slightly out of spec as well, and it makes it really fun having to fucking gamble if my standard camera shit will interface or act like I’m ramming a bad dragon into its cutouts.

    Brits like most things, are good in theory, but will turn out some real ass on occasion. You dont hear much shitflinging against them because A; its prohibitively expensive to get one, and B; 75% of PrepHole doesnt own a fucking gun anyway, and its mostly gay reddit war tourists larping as experts on firearms.

    I wish Sako could have just done a better job in the magazine department, because the trg series is a better made gun across the spectrum.

      I want to shoot one and would love to hunt with one as well as several other (surplus or commercial versions of military) rifles like an SVD, PSL, K31, etc. This guy is living my dream except for being in the UK and having it in black and with a folding stock. That being said, I've never ever seen a single one, not even a part for one, in person.

      >the 8-ball bolt handle is the cheapest shit acrylic you can find (like novelty autozone manual transmission shifter cap plastic)
      Is it hollow? I imagined it being like a nice machined chunk of resin that is threaded and tightened down. Something dense.

      I shot a few and handled many of the rifles my battalion's sniper platoon had when I was with them on the Bn shooting team and I never saw any of that, I thought they were well made. These were AWM not AX.

      So, dunno. But they were certainly accurate.

      Maybe this issue you're facing is that the weapon is built in metric but you're trying to fit American imperial onto it?
      The scaling difference between inches and millimetres will be enough to make everything look out of spec?

      Mine had pretty good fit and finish before I rattlecanned it. Not sure what you're talking about with the bolt knob feeling cheap either. Key slot accessories are retarded but other than that there's really not much to complain about AI rifles.

      You buy an AI because you want an AI. There's a plethora of better and cheaper rifles out there, but they'll never be an AI.

      There is no point buying an AI unless you’re buying a long action and for what you’re spending, a custom barreled action like a surgeon, rebel, mcmillan, etc. is the better choice, especially for competition shooters.
      Less and less people use factory rifles anymore, almost every placing comp shooter is using their own build or builds from shops like from altus or gap.

      This person has never shot precision or handled an AI, disregard entirely.

    They were good for their time but there are other manufacturers that offer equal quality/accurate rifles now.

    >sako trg line
    >cadex cdx-tac/kraken
    >barrett
    >blaser

    Etc.

      How much does an AICS chassis even run? Also fuck, I think 260 Rips did the same as you (left hand model) and I made myself look like a retard; look at the bolt handle. Looks like it shoots real nice though. (

      I saw a bunch of police surplus AI rifles sell cheap on GB past year, like $1500 a pop. They had shorter barrels than you usually see but otherwise looked OK. Wonder if it would have been worth it.

      Damn, that's not a bad price. With scope or did they take them off?

        I overpaid for it on Tacswap since I’ve wanted one since I was a kid, I want to say it was around $1500.

      i feel like it would be one of those things you take out like once, maybe twice, and then never again.

        and you'd be able to tell people you have a fugging AI
        just tell everyone it's an AWP

          Nobody cares if you have an AI. The bolt fudds at the range all think it's a r700 in a chassis anyways.

    It annoys me when people call Accuracy International AW-type rifles "L96"

    Iconic but vastly overpriced.
